Should you bet on the Steelers to beat the Jaguars?
Last week the Steelers put the NFL on notice by steamrolling the Panthers by a 52-21 score. Straight-up Pittsburgh is 6-2-1 overall and 3-0-1 away from Heinz Field. For against the spread bettors, the Steelers are 6-3 ATS overall, 3-1 ATS on the road, and 3-3 ATS as a favorite.
Now Pittsburgh faces a team it lost to twice on home field in the same year twice. That’s right the Jags beat the Steelers at Heinz Field twice in the same season. It happened in 2007 and last season. That should be motivation enough for this Steeler team to bring the big hurt to the Sunshine State this Sunday.
Heading into this game, the Steelers have won five in a row while the Jaguars have lost five consecutive games.
Should you bet on the Jaguars to beat the Steelers?
A year ago the Jaguars handed the Steelers two of their four losses, including a 45-42 loss in an AFC divisional round playoff game at Heinz Field.
But this is a different Jaguars team. Straight-up Jacksonville is 3-6 overall and 2-3 at home. For bettors, the Jags ATS record this season is 3-5-1 overall, 2-2 at home, and 1-2-1 as an underdog or pick. Are those two Jaguars wins on the Steelers’ home turf last season enough to warrant a bet on Jacksonville?
There are two big reasons to bet on the Jaguars. Jacksonville is ranked third in the NFL in total defense at 319.1 yards against and ranked 1st against the pass while allowing 215.4 yards through the air.
If the Jaguars don’t beat the Steelers, they can start their offseason early.
ATS Pick Steelers vs. Jaguars NFL Week 11
How are the Jaguars a 5.5-point home underdog against a team they beat on the road twice last season? I am just as surprised as you are even though the Jags have disappointed all season long.
Leonard Fournette is back and he takes the pressure off of Blake Bortles, so to see the Jaguars getting nearly a TD at home here is too much value to pass on. Bet the Jaguars ATS. If you find a Steelers -3 line, then jump on Pittsburgh against the spread.
